I have been on this BC pill for 2 months now. Ive taken it before and last time and this time the first month I have missed my period. Its very irregular and my face has broken out with acne and I have never had acne except when on my period. I'm always tired but I guess it's worth it when you aren't getting pregnant.

Too much break-thru bleeding while on Junel for me. Switched to Kariva and all's well.

Comment:
Still constantly paranoid that I may be pregnant (due to breast tenderness) but overall, I have been pleased with this birth control. Taking a pill is always a pain but it is definitely the cheapest option. As far as side effects, I have noticed an increase in headaches but no weight gain or hair loss. My periods have been less severe but not shorter in duration.

Comment:
I have been very happy with Junel. This is the 1st pill I have taken w/o horrible side effects. I experienced slight nausea and cramping on day 2, but that's gone away. I have slightly elevated hunger level, so I have needed to be conscious of food intake. No bloating, spotting, and weight gain. My libido has increased and my acne cleared up.
